This is a fine example of an American Adjunct Lager (AAL). Granted AAL is far from my go to style, near the bottom in fact, however measured against style, this is a VERY good beer. For those keeping an open mind and not having the expectations this is something it's not, this is certainly worth a try!

Typical bad, yet refreshing and drinkable, adjunct with a little bit of a funny taste in the nose. Nothing to see here.

So I thought "why the hell not?" While at the Green Turtle in Annapolis. Ended up with a glass of fizzy yellow water that mayvor may not have contained corn byproduct at some point in time. Needless to say, this is a boring, bland beer that apparently has niche hipstrt appeal. Go figure.

I got 4 cans from the generous RA. Thanks dude!

Best before March 2, 2015 on the bottom of the can.

It pours the crystal clearest of pale gold with what ends up being a fine broken layer of foam.

There's sweetish malt and grain in the smell with a hit of a bitter note or 2.

The taste is sweetish malt, corn/grain/ with a hint of a bitter note or 2. :^)

Almost at the US defined Session Beer at 4.6%, I'd take this over the few other AALs that linger in the stores around town that include BMC(old name of course) and non BMC.

Actually fairly decent for what it is. theres a little hoppiness accompanying the normal macro corn flavors, but is not cloying. I cant drink much of it before Im sick of it, but that goes for pretty much every domestic lager. Better than most & a sixer takes me down memory lane every now & then
